its a 6/2010 build by zach lightfoot. thanks!!! LOL i saw one much bigger on my way to hang this one up!!!! the main tines were 10 or 11 inches i bet. sadly all of the town tags are antlerless only. i supose i could have taken a picture with the bow too. sadly i dropped it off on my way to pick up my buddy who helped track, gut, and drag him outta the woods. i got better pics on the real camera, but im kinda too tired to upload um yet

im really happy with it!! this is my first year bowhunting, and first deer ive ever taken. LOL but there are some monsters in my area that i may have had a crack at, but im probably lucky to take this one!! ive hunted all my life though(rabbit squirril pheasant coon) and i think rabbits are harder to sneak up on. =D excluding town rabits i guess...... ah tired ramblings!!

RE: where did you get him?

central iowa. weve got alot of big deer again this year. i guess iowa is a pretty good state to hunt deer.

why is it called a 10 point? not allowed to hunt in the uk.

a ten point would have ten points on the antlers. some people dont count the brush tines though, so they would call it an 8 point. i dont know what this particular buck scores yet. my freind thats scores them is away on a fishing trip.

EDIT: anyone got a guess on what he would score?
EDIT2: i uploaded a pic from the feild and updated my first post. much better quality!!
EDIT3: and the "score" (not having much to do with the points) has something to do with total antler length, width and height. idk for sure

Congrade. Nice trophy. Also nice shot placement. ;) What broadhead did you use?

justin

lol you see where i shot him? it wasnt exactly an ideal shot but i was close, it was a 22 yard shot straight on. i was grouping under 2 inches at that range that afternoon so took the shot. the broadhead i was using was a nap shockwave. but i wish i had a fixed blade knocked for a straight into the chest shot. my aarow buried to just before the flech though. he got about 75 yards dumping lots of blood. it was a quick kill. i did a rough score tonight too and came up with 137. not so bad for my first deer.

EDIT: i apoligise for the blood and the tounge hanging out.

Lol don't think there would have been any chance of a past throw from that position. Very nice Trophy. Any deer killed with a bow is a trophy. But thats a nice deer all the way round.
